Kurt Jensen Communications Director A professional publication like CV Directions becomes immensely more valuable when its member-subscribers take ownership of its content. Each study, presentation, essay or piece of news submitted by members of the Alliance of Cardiovascular Professionals connects other members to new initiatives and new ideas, creating value and personal connections across the association. The ACVP dedicates itself to supporting the professionalism and excellence of its members through continuing education, but simply reading or listening is not enough. Taking an active role in research, or simply writing up and sharing your ideas and experiences, will further your professional education and boost your resumé. If you are implementing a new initiative or researching new techniques in clinical or management practices, take the extra time to write up and publicize your good work. For news, please submit press releases between 200-400 words. If interested in publishing essays or research, please submit articles of 600-1000 wo ɑ̸)
